    My "must-do" project is nearing completion!

    I have been working literally morning to evening for the past week to get this quilt top pieced. It is the 'Magic Square" Pattern by Helene Knott. I ended up adding on to the pattern in order to get to a large queen size by the time I add on some borders. Tomorrow I am off to Lancaster, PA to buy some border fabric Got to have the top done by 8/10 to get it to my LAQ!
